Travis Bryan, Jr. was a life-long resident of Bryan, Texas, except for his four year service with the United States Navy’s Pacific Fleet during World War II. He lived a consistent and predictable life in terms of his passions and loves. He loved his family unconditionally and treasured his friends, young and old, immeasurably. He appreciated and could not do enough for his customers and employees of The First National Bank, one of his greatest passions along with the game of golf which bore him much pleasure and numerous friendships. He had tremendous pride in his community, the State of Texas, his country, Bryan Public Schools and Texas A-M University which have lost one of their biggest fans. But, all of his life, he has maintained a steadfast love for his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, at whose hand he resides today.
Travis Bryan, Jr. is preceded in death by his parents, Travis B. Bryan and Ruth Boatwright Bryan.
He is survived by his wife, Norma Bess Norman Bryan of Bryan; two sons and a daughter-in-law, Travis B. Bryan, III and wife, Rebecca of Bryan and Timothy Norman Bryan of Bryan; five grandchildren and their spouses, Austin Wood Bryan and Rebecca of Georgetown, Rebecca Bryan Leeper and Chad of Eagle, Colorado, William Joel Bryan, VI and Pam of The Woodlands, Emily Bryan Bullion and Lewis of Katy and Elizabeth Bryan Landgraf and Ian of College Station; great grandchildren William Travis Bryan, Hannah Claire Landgraf, Nathan Chad Leeper, William Joel Bryan, VII, Wyatt Jennings Bryan, Jackson Bryan Landgraf and Rebecca Lucille Leeper.
